We’re Moving!!! – September 18, 2021

We’re moving! Starting on October 03, 2021, our sister sites, addi Needle Shop and Colorsong Yarn will be joining together under one roof – www.twitchyhands.com. You’ll find all of our high quality addi tools, our luxurious hand-dyed yarns, plus our top-notch service – all in one place!

A brief history – our founders, Bob and Nancy, started Colorsong Yarn back in the early 2000s when their great friend, Cat Bordhi, came to visit with two duffle bags full of Fleece Artist yarn; it was an instant love affair with high quality fibers and hand-dyed beauty. Two years later, Cat introduced them to the addi line of knitting and crochet tools, and they knew it was the perfect pairing for their luxury yarn. Thus addi Needle Shop came to be. For our long-time customers that remember that far back, it was Bob and Nancy’s Services that ran the sister websites.

A few years after that, I came along. What started as a temporary job doing data entry turned into a permanent position when Bob and Nancy learned of my knitting, crocheting, and designing background. I was a perfect fit for the company! Fast-forward to 2014 – Bob and Nancy retired to Mexico, and I took over the business under my designing moniker – Twitchy Hands.

We’ve been Twitchy Hands Creative, Inc. ever since, operating Colorsong Yarn and the addi Needle Shop with as much care and attention as always. But change must come! With the evolving landscape of online shopping, plus some big plans for future products, it’s time for us to put all of our offerings under one roof, so to speak. So we hope you’ll join us for the next chapter!

We anticipate a seamless move, so all orders placed before the move and after will ship as usual. All outstanding backorders will remain in our system and will ship as soon as the stock is available. If you have any outstanding store credits or gift certificates, we’ll be in touch with further instructions. And if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out! For now, you can still reach us at info@twitchyhandsinc.com

New Arrivals and New Prices – September 11, 2021


New Arrivals and New Prices
! First, the good news – we’ve received huge new batches of Hand Maiden Sea Silk, Fleece Artist Cottage Socks, and Fleece Artist Curly Locks! We just love diving into big boxes of yarn; it’s such a treat. You’ll find brand new colorways and fresh batches of existing colorways waiting for you in our collections.

Now, the rest. As with many things, the price of some of our yarn bases has increased significantly in the last two years – the COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the production and distribution process, and thus our final cost. As new batches of these yarns arrive, we must increase our prices accordingly.

Moving forward, Fleece Artist’s Cottage Socks, Curly Locks and Hand Maiden’s Sea Silk will have higher prices. We always avoid price increases as much as possible, but they are sometimes necessary. To ease the transition to their new prices, please enjoy 20% OFF each of these yarns with coupon code NEWPRICESALE through midnight on Friday, September 17, 2021. Click ‘Recalculate’ to apply the code.

Coupon code excludes out of stock yarns. Find our entire collection of yarns here!

Now, the rest. As with many things, the price of some of our yarn bases has increased significantly in the last year – the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the production process, and thus the cost. As new batches of these yarns arrive, we must increase our prices accordingly.

Starting today, Fleece Artist’s BFL DK and Mo yarns will have a higher price. We try to avoid price increases as much as possible – we’ve had the same price on these two outstanding yarns since 2009! But the time has come – to help ease the change, we’re including these two yarns in our 20% off coupon code.

Sale excludes out of stock yarns and Clearance Corner. Check out our selection, including many new colorways, here.
